Most Seminoles fans are familiar with the twitter prowess of former offensive coordinator James Coley, who is now at Miami.
But one of the new hires at FSU, tight end coach Tim Brewster, also has a reputation as an active tweeter. And it just so happens that Brewster will be recruiting in South Florida, in some of the same territory covered by James Coley.
... twitter showdown set.
And Brewster wasted no time in taking to twitter to talk a little recruiting. No names, of course, as that would be an NCAA violation.

Need the 305 to know Doak is sold out 85.000 every home game......Wow!! Go Noles!! #NoleNation— Tim Brewster (@TimBrewster) March 5, 2013

The 305, of course, is a reference to Dade County, one of the more fertile recruiting areas in the country, and the home of the Miami Hurricanes.
Brewster's assertion that DCS is sold out for every home game, however, well, is incorrect. On two fronts. First, Tallahassee is a pain to get to, being within two hours of only one major city (Jacksonville), and does not sell out every game. Second, even if it were sold out, Doak holds slightly more than 83,000, not 85,000.
Of course, compared to Miami's attendance (one of the worst among the BCS conferences), Doak looks like it is holding the population of New York City.
When Brewster was hired, I wondered if Fisher would let him tweet. Twitter is important in recruiting, as is all social media, but it also has the possibility for problems, which Brewster has encountered in the past.
In any case, it looks like Brewster will be a fixture on twitter.
